"is-land"

xxxxx includes Martin Howse, among other things an Emacs master living in Berlin where he has been running all kinds of workshops (mostly on free software and hardware) at his studio on Linienstr. 54. Martin has written extensively about Free Software and has engaged in many types of experiments: I heard about one of his projects in which he invited different people to a discussion, then started to process their voices and interrupt the easy and smooth development of the conversation. The session got into chaos. Not all of the people appreciated it, but when you take risks it is likely that some people are not going to like what you do. Something similar happens with is-land, a tough record which demands time and concentration but can be extremely rewarding. One of the hardest and most exiting releases that I heard for a long time.

The cover for XXXXX's 'Is-Land' lists 'GNU/Linux, GNU Emacs, GCC, EVP, Audicity under Debian (testing)' and inside a lengthy text on magic, ghostly voices and such like. Hard to figure what this is all about. The music is pretty much based on static hiss, cable hum and perhaps other sorts of interference picked up in an empty room. The noise at work is quite nice, but in the three lengthy pieces also a bit overlong. The six other pieces seem to have the length they fit, somewhere between two and five minutes, which is absolutely fine to get the idea across (ok, so I lie here: its all a bit unclear to me what this release is about. But aside of that, I must admit its the sort of noise I like: not too loud, not always loud and maybe with some consideration. Download this software and start toying around - I believe that's also a message from this label. Do it yourself in the digital age. (FdW)
